Is A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie responsible for over $250,000 in damages to a $3.3 million New Jersey home? Dr. Lawrence Guarino and Carol Guarino are accusing the Bronx-raised rapper of wrecking their Mahwah mansion while renting the house in 2017 and 2018.
AllHipHop.com obtained documents revealing A Boogie (born Artist Julius Dubose) is being sued for allegedly leaving the bathroom toilets “clogged and overrun by sewerage material.” The couple claims the human waste penetrated through the floors and ruined the ceilings below.
Guarino also noted landscape damage, water damage, wall damage, carpet damage, and more. The plaintiffs allege the tenants abandoned the home “in a condition that left it unable to be leased until extensive repairs were conducted.”
A Boogie and High Bridge The Label founder Quincy Acheampong reportedly signed a 12-month lease agreement for the property. The Guarinos are seeking $263,592 in compensation. The lawsuit was filed in Hackensack Superior Court.
In addition, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie was arrested on weapons and drug possession charges in December. Police say they discovered handguns, ammunition, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia in the “Look Back At It” performer’s Demarest, New Jersey residence.
Over the last four years, A Boogie has released three studio LPs – 2017’s The Bigger Artist, 2018’s Hoodie SZN, and 2020’s Artist 2.0. Each of those projects reached Gold-certified status. His first two albums, as well as 2016’s Artist mixtape, earned Platinum plaques.
